Rounding up a few recent outfits
It was a really busy week for me, so here are some quick snapshots! My cousin visited for Memorial Day weekend and we had the best time running all over the city. The weather varied from perfect at 85 degrees and sunny to chilly and 65*, so my outfits incorporated both Spring and Summer styles. I’m still obsessed with my birthday jacket, picked up this adorable midi skirt, and am thoroughly enjoying the square neckline trend.

What Spring and Summer trends have you been loving lately?
Wearing all blue
I’ve worn this striped sweater several times lately. It’s warm, but still lightweight and I love that the stripes line up at all of the seams. It’s something I look for when buying patterned pieces because it’s a sign of higher quality design and construction. I’m also still obsessed with these earrings… They go with every outfit and make a subtle statement! Can’t get enough. I linked some similar options in this post.
These Gap Girlfriend jeans are my favorite for casual looks. They fit a lot better than your typical boyfriend jeans – which can sometimes look silly or overwhelming on me because I’m so short. I also love the medium blue wash and statement pockets. Here’s a pair with similar distressed details. I cuffed mine to show off these shoes…
I’m finally wearing these booties I bought back in November! My sprain has almost completely healed, so anything with a heel is an option again! Spring starts next week, so velvet is now on the way out… but it’s supposed to snow tomorrow! So I think I can get away with them for a bit longer thankfully. Plus I love everything about these booties from the deep blue color to the floral embossed pattern. Here are some similar options if you’re looking for a fun style while it’s still chilly:
Sam Edelman Case Velvet Booties • Sam Edelman • $150
Vanessa Wu Metallic Booties • $99.95
Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties • Sam Edelman • $65
Jack Rogers Jr Bailee Suede Booties • Jack Rogers • $64
Marc Fisher LTD. Women’s Cassidey2 Velvet Booties • Marc Fisher • $110.25
Are you guys ready for Spring? What are you most looking forward to wearing? You know I love my jeans, but I’m actually excited about dresses right now.
I’m so excited to share my first lookbook! These five outfits are pretty simple to recreate whether you are celebrating with a casual girl’s brunch or going out for date night. I tried to cover a variety of looks with different vibes, so I hope you love it!
Which outfit was your favorite? Should I do more lookbooks?
Denim days, everyday
I pretty much live in jeans. They’re comfortable and so versatile! I like to switch up the cut, color, and details so I don’t get bored wearing plain old blue jeans all the time.
This pair has fun little star studs all over. It’s a unique, playful detail that I love. Would you believe they’re from Gap?? I think they’re a year or two old now. Here’s a similar pair, but this would also be a super simple diy project!
This looser, boyfriend fit is so laid back and comfortable. They’re a bit big at the waist, but that’s perfect for tucking in a fitted turtleneck. This plain black one is from Splendid; I also love the J Crew tissue tees they bring back each Fall.
On a personal note, I can wear heels again! I sprained my foot back in November and it’s still not 100% for some reason (relevé during ballet is not my favorite right now). However, I threw on these Nine West pumps and they weren’t painful! Yay for little wins.
What’s your favorite denim brand?? I’m always looking for new pairs!
I’m obsessed with orange
It was surprisingly warm this weekend, which was a lovely break from the 20 degree temps we usually have in January. I decided to celebrate with a colorful, casual look.
I’m slowly amassing orange clothing – it’s one of my favorite colors and makes me happy when I wear it. I now have a corduroy skirt, loose sweater, swing tee, and this gorgeous jacket from Scotch & Soda. It sold out unfortunately, but here’s a similar option from Uniqlo.
I’m also wearing a pair of burgundy legging jeans from Loft. They’re a softer material which makes them really comfortable and they have a cute back zip detail. The petite length hits right above my ankle which I find flattering.
Lastly, I’ve raved about Dolce Vita before and live in these suede sneakers in the cooler months. They have a higher shaft than your typical sneaker, so they keep my ankles warm, but they’re a perfect light taupe so they transition from winter to spring nicely. Here’s this year’s updated version.
What do you guys think about this orange and burgundy color combo?
